    Default Terry Love's plumbing & remodel forum meet?

    I was daydreaming just now as I was in the basement planning my new toilet supply line, how wonderful it would be if one day, perhaps a long time from now, Terry hosted a forum meet at his house in Washington State, perhaps with a barbeque.

    We could come from all over the country and meet for the very first time!

    I could fly in from DC, Florida Orange could make the short drive from Florida, Scuba Dave could take his private jet and we could all laugh over a beer. Perhaps nhmaster and Redwood could treat us to a seminar or two.

    I wonder if it will ever happen? And would we all come home alive?

    If I'm driving a stang I'll take the trip. I don't think the F150 would make it.
    Doubt it would happen though.

    My mom just got back from Seatlle, she vacations out there at least once a year.

    I would love to go to seattle,
    but I would have to drag along my wife and kids with me, so it probably wont happen...



    if it were to happen, it would have to be a

    "plumbing seminar" hosted by Terry Love where all the great
    plumbing minds of the 21st century meet for a
    round table discussion....on urgent topics like....FVIR water heater repairs
    Toto toilets vs Gerber......new drain cleaning equipment......
    things like that thar " high level " kind of stuff.......

    ..

    that way the trip would be tax deductable...
    as a business expence.. then I could take a drive down to
    San Franscisco on the 101... very beautiful trip.


    you dont mind me stiffing the government
    do you Ian???

    Not at all Mark, since this would be for the common good. But get a wife/babysitter!

    I hope Terry would be flipping the burgers.

    Am I included in those "greatest plumbing minds of the 21st century"?

    I'd like a separate session on "Dealing with serious code violations by adjusting the flapper chain".

    You started me on the wrong coast Ian, does that mean I have to drive to Miami first? Except for a couple blocks along the beach Miami is mostly a craphole, and not the kind of craphole we like to discuss here.

    Sure, maybe next Summer to celebrate.
    I should be about done by then and back on a regular schedule.

    Here I am looking at my CAT scan.
    Liver good, Lungs good, bones good.
    I need a little work on the colon though.
    Looks like I will be cutting back on red meat.

    Seattle's a good place to be in the Summer.

    Hey Terry, Glad to hear the CAT Scan had good news.

    I was just thinking with you being under the weather a bit we should make it easy for you and have the first hook up at Ian's place.

    That way you can just pop into town for a quick visit and bail...
